I’ve always had a long interest in astrology.
I’m one of those sappy people who think that there is such a thing as fate. I like to romanticize about my life by following my daily horoscope. I know, that to some extent, it’s for “entertainment” purposes, but it’s fun speculating about what is going to happen based on some strangers prediction.
Now I know there is always arguments about how hokey astrology is. for instance, if you grab five daily newspapers and read your horoscope for all five, there is 90% chance that it will all contradict each other. But that is true for anything -truth, opinion, fact and empirical data always contradict each other.
Others choose not to believe due to the “nature” of astrology — that the placing of your life in the stars seems hokey. However, history has shown us that many famous leaders, politicians, older cultures and religions (Greeks, Egyptians, etc) used the worshipping of the different gods/goddesses, moons, planets in the daily course of their lives. While true, in more modern times it has gotten a bad rap, to me it’s the same with organized religion: people are apt to believe in one supreme being and have a faith they can’t explain. Therefore, why can’t I choose to believe in something along those same lines and use it in my daily life?
Again, I take astrology with a grain of salt. I know for instance that I interact with those compatible with me (sags, scorps, other geminis) then I do with libras, virgos and leos. I also know that too often, what I read does correspond with how I am. For instance:
Geminis are optimistic people. All things are fresh and fascinating for the twins, it’s the way they like it to be. They often possess the enthusiasm of a child. Routine is boring, and boring is not allowed. Restless, with an active imagination and a keen intellect, life must be lived to the fullest for Gemini. Perceived as a game, life is best played with swift moves and entertaining teammates. With the zeal of a sportsman, Gemini analyzes everything. They often possess a compulsive need to know the why of all they experience. A twin wants to know the causes, motivations, and dynamics behind everything and everyone they encounter.
Geminis are expressive folk, and this may manifest beyond mere speech. Often gifted with their hands, it seems whatever they touch does turn to gold. Their love of communication may also express itself as an affinity for languages, which they tend to pick up quite easily. Known for being great story tellers, Geminis have a knack of making life a little more interesting for the rest of us.
Many people who know me fairly intimately know this is to be true. This is how I am. I think some aspects of me can be altered and changed to an extent, but the major dynamic of me cannot.
Interested? I’ve linked some sites below that talk about Gemini’s and how we are as a whole. And of course, you can always find more information by using a search engine.
